Artificial intelligence, or AI, has come a long way in the public eye. People in the 1970s were warning the world about the “dangers” of AI, and now gamers all over the world happily join up with?AI teammates?in some of their favorite titles. While we know (or at least, we?think we know) that AI isn’t going to commit a hostile takeover, it is learning how to take over certain parts of game design, most recently in regards to the “Grand Theft Auto” series.
Back in January, Rockstar’s new patent?for NPC behavior showed fans just how much AI may be involved in the upcoming “GTA” games. And now, a project known as “GAN Theft Auto” has been recently created by an AI. That’s right: artificial intelligence built a new, playable version of “GTA 5.”
The project, which YouTuber sentdex showed off in a video posted on June 18, was created by “using a GameGAN fork based on NVIDIA’s GameGAN research.”?Essentially, sentdex said, an AI was trained by watching bots drive around in the game. The AI learned how the game functions by observing typical player inputs and seeing how various frames in the game interact with one another.
While AI has been a hot word for a while now, “GAN Theft Auto” takes things to a whole new level.
